Beyond the first bloom.
Third bloom Embryo 1. Second bloom may have been influenced by two larvae found on plant, their damage evident on leaf below bloom.
Crinkly edge? Embryo 1 Image 10-09-11
It opened late in the previous day so was still curled this morning. Image 10-09-11
Very first bloom from a tissue cultured plant from my lab. 9-28-11
Wider petals than those I've seen through images found on the net. This is from a clone of Embryo 1.
Its fragrance is similar to gardenia.
Side view - at time of photo I was upset about the curled petal.
But later in the afternoon - it started showing its true nature.
And although one stubborn petal refused to curl, not bad.
This is the same bloom, next morning (9-29-11) just before sunrise, mostly uncurled.
Later in the same day.
Morning of 9-30-11 - It appears that it only curls on the first day. :-(
